'Myanmar places mines on border Bangladesh'

World September 6, 2017 07:24

dhaka - Myanmar has laid mines in recent days along the border with Bangladesh. Two sources within the Bangladesh government are opposed to the press agency Reuters.

With mining, Myanmar tries to prevent fledged Rohinga Muslims from returning to the country. The two sources want to stay anonymous.

Bangladesh came through photo material and informants in the area that Myanmar places mines, they say. The government will formally object to this.

It is estimated that 123,000 Rohinga Muslims fled to Bangladesh because of the violence in Myanmar. The Muslims are not recognized as citizens in the predominantly Buddhist Myanmar.

The armed forces in Myanmar only respond to attacks of armed insurgents on military camps and police stations.
